A recent study shows that women who have college degrees are the heaviest drinkers and are twice as likely to drink on a daily basis.
The report concludes: “The more educated women are, the more likely they are to drink alcohol on most days and to report having problems due to their drinking patterns.”The better-educated appear to be the ones who engage the most in problematic patterns of alcohol consumption.”Women’s alcohol consumption can even be predicted from their scores in school tests taken when they are as as young as five. Women who achieved “medium” or “high” test marks as schoolgirls are up to 2.1 times more likely to drink daily as adults.
Does this really come as a surprise to anyone? I’m not surprised at all… Now, off to pour myself a glass of wine.
